  1. THE COMPLETE BATHROOM BLINDS GUIDE


    Roller Blinds

    Do Bathroom Blinds Need to be Waterproof?

    The common idea about bathroom blinds is that they need to be waterproof, but that’s not the full story. At  #Blinds, we know what matters when it comes to keeping your home looking its best, which is why we’ve invested heavily in anti-mould PVC fabrics.

    Bathrooms are always a little bit damp in the air when you’ve enjoyed a long relaxing soak in the bath, and there’s no getting away from that. That’s why we use waterproof mould-resistant fabrics that don’t take on any moisture so that mould never gets the chance to form. Just what you need when you want to keep your brand new bathroom looking its best for years to come.

    Take a Look at Our Colour Ranges.

    Every bathroom used to be aqua blue, and whilst we love that kind of colour, we know that you want more from your decor than ever before. Take a look at a few of our colour range ideas below to give yourself plenty of food for thought.

    How Bathroom Blinds Provide Privacy? 

    We’re proud that our blinds don’t just look great; they work great too. That means when you want to relax in the bath and never feel like you’re overlooked, all you need to do is lower your brand new bathroom blinds and let them do the rest. Exactly what you need for that all-important peace of mind.

  2. WHAT INSPIRING PATTERNED BLINDS CAN DO FOR YOUR HOME

    Polk-Dot

    Choosing a polka-dot patterned blind can brighten and energise even the dullest of rooms. Ideal for a kitchen or nursery, polka-dots offer a pop of colour without being overwhelming. They can create a warm atmosphere in winter or summer. With a crisp cream base, choose from the vibrant splashes of primrose yellow and flamingo pink and make it the main attraction of the room or opt for subtle, pastel hues to create a cheery and comforting ambience.


    Stripes

    Stripes are a versatile and diverse pattern which can inject energy into a space or create a laid-back haven. Opt for a lively, modern patterned Venetian Blinds for your home office to motivate and inspire. Or choose a subtle combination of two or three different tones which work together to create an inviting and vibrant atmosphere, ideal for a living room or kitchen as hubs of the home.

    Floral

    Floral patterns suit any style of home, from natural hues and realistic designs for a traditional feel or bold and abstract prints for modern and contemporary furnishing. Ideal for a living room or dining room, choose soft grey patterned roller blinds, which effortlessly blend into the surroundings or make a statement with a contrasting navy blue and mustard yellow combination. Floral patterns can brighten up any space, giving it a light and airy atmosphere and allowing natural light to shine through.


    Animals

    Animal prints are a fun and cheerful way to brighten up your space and create a light and vibrant setting. Available in a wide variety of characters, animal pattern blinds are suitable for any room in the house. Use a bird pattern in your kitchen or dining room to add a contemporary twist to a rural space, or add adventure to your child’s bedroom with a selection of funky zoo animals. For a more adult look, opt for a wildlife pattern with a tropical theme to add some exotic flair to your kitchen or living room.

    Geometric

    Geometric patterned blinds are perfect for a modern home. Sharp, angular features against a white backdrop can create a big impact in your home. Match your bathroom or guestroom with a hexagon print for an energetic and fresh environment or select a hypnotic, triangle patterning to add a burst of colour to your kitchen.

  4. How To Transform Your Family Home


    Soften Your Lighting With Warm White Lights

    Bright overhead lights might look great in the modern fitted kitchen, but if you want to relax together in the living room then they’re not such a great idea. When you head into the lounge you’re putting your feet up, you’re chilling out, and you’re making memories together. Warm white lights allow you to add that cosy and homely atmosphere that you’ve always wanted. Opt for lamps and tea lights rather than overhead lighting in the evening and you’ll all feel that little bit more snug.


    Blankets and Cushions Make Things Cosy

    There’s nothing like cuddling up with a blanket and lounging back with the help from a few plush cushions is there? If you want everyone to feel at home the moment they come through the door, then you need to find a way to keep your blankets and cushions on display. It might not sound like a big issue, but if you keep everything stored in the spare room, then all that great comfy stuff will be out of sight, and out of mind.

    Hang a blanket on the back of the couch, and disperse the scatter cushions all over the place and you’ll notice the difference straight away.


    Family Photos are Better Than Any Artwork

    By all means, keep your artwork up, but make sure you have plenty of wall space for your family photos. A gallery wall behind the TV and a couple of photo albums on the coffee table would be a great way to add those personal touches to the living room.

  10. Things to Consider When Choosing Blinds

    The key to buying the right blind is to identify your specific requirements.

    Here are 5 tips for selecting, measuring and caring for window blinds:

    1. Is the blind for a bedroom where you require a dark room? For bedrooms look at roman blinds which are available with blackout linings. They also have no holes or slats that let in the light.
    2. Are you choosing a humid room, such as a kitchen or bathroom? Avoid natural materials such as linen, silk and wood which can rot, twist or fade in humid conditions. Instead opt for an aluminium Venetian blind that doesn’t rust, faux wood blinds or roller blinds made from waterproof PVC.
    3. Is your room overlooked or lets in a lot of bright light? Venetian and Vertical Blinds are excellent at directing away bright sunlight yet allowing light into the room, whilst bottom-up roller blinds provide just the right balance between privacy and light.

    4: How do I measure my own blind? Decide whether you want your blinds to fit inside or outside the window recess.  For outside recess measuring the width and drop of the area over the window, you want to cover and provide these exact measurements.  For a blind to fit inside the recess take three measurements across the width in millimetres (top, middle and bottom) and three measurements for the drop (left, middle and right) and use the smallest measurement taken for both width and drop. (Click here for a more detailed guide)

    5: Always use a metal tape measure! When taking measurements, fabric tapes can stretch and be inaccurate and always take your measurements in millimetres and not inches or centimetres as there is nothing worse than ordering a blind that then does not fit your window.
